Michael Jackson's Dad Wants Medical Records

12/31/2009 4:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's father, Joe Jackson, has subpoenaed medical and other records from the UCLA Medical Center because he believes the records could reveal evidence of foul play in Jackson's death -- and the subpoena has outraged MJ estate lawyers ... TMZ has learned.

Joe's lawyer, Brian Oxman, sent 2 subpoenas to the UCLA Medical Center -- the hospital where Michael Jackson was pronounced dead on June 25. Oxman is asking for a number of documents, including medical records, autopsy reports, autopsy photos, medications and prognosis assessments.

Joe Jackson tells TMZ his entire family is behind the subpoenas -- Katherine, the brothers and sisters, along with him. He says they all believe the medical records will show what was in Jackson's body when he passed and they believe the information will expose foul play.

We've obtained a letter sent to Oxman by estate lawyer Howard Weitzman, in which Weitzman calls the subpoenas "clearly improper." Weitzman claims the subpoenas violate Jackson's right of privacy and the physician/patient privilege. Weitzman also says the subpoenas are irrelevant to Joe Jackson's only legal claim -- a financial allowance.

Joe Jackson is not a loser. He made this family with the help of his wife. He taught his kids what they know, which is, hard work allows you to reach your goals and dreams.

Hey Bunny!
Thanks for the 411. I tried to find the Nanny Grace story on Firpo's page and came up with other Michael stories but none on Grace. Maybe the story was pulled? If there's a particular story or link you used to get to it, please let me know.
Thanks again!

Cher it's still there....go to Firpo's facebook, under his pic you'll see his mutual friends, and his other friends, then under that you'll see "Links"'s the 3rd (last link there). When it comes up, make sure you click on "view previous comments" to see the lot. In particular, read the comments by person, initials K.A.

I thought I was the only one the planet that saw that this case was handled improperly, From the onset, LAPD did not initiate standard crime scene investigative procedures... as would happen when a suspicious death has occurred.. Sloppy ... and the Jackson think the LAPD did a great job!
Folks were allowed in the crime scene picking up items , alleging thief and finally the Coroners office picked up things from the house, allowed to run around...
Frankly, I would have thought the Jackson family would have had all medical information, coroners reports PRIOR to Michaels burial.... Coroners reports are seen everyday by social workers, welfare workers and other public agencies and easy to get. This is a mess and Dr Murray may not be the only suspect... But we may never know because this case was not handled properly by Law enforcement!!!!!
Did other folks in the household give Micheal injections?

I totally agree with Facingreality on this one. Michael's mother Katherine is a money hunger also. She keeps quiet from the press, never ever defending her son! Joe was the one who always came up with ideas of how to get money from Michael, but Katherine was the one who always made Michael feel guilty if he said no. She always said "Do it for the family." She knew Michael could never say no to her. Michael's parents really bother me. I feel sorry for Michael, it always seemed like all they wanted from him was his money!!!! No wonder he wanted to be apart from them...
